Hi Philipp,

I've got a friend who is majorly into sonification (representation of audio=
 in other forms). I've asked him about your enquiry and his suggestion was =
to possibly create a 3D print of a spectrogram. That way you would be able =
to feel the different frequencies. However, it might be a bit expensive and=
 not instantaneous, nor changing when you adjust the frequencies. But maybe=
 there's some sort of electronic trickery with pins that come out of an ele=
ctronics board. I'm in no way aware of such a thing, nor would I be able to=
 build one but it's one thought that comes to mind.

Hope this helps,
